Government is trying to up the numbers of people that have been vaccinated against Covid-19. In this video, taxi driver Clement Doncabe, explains how taxi drivers have been working as essential workers alongside doctors and nurses since the Covid-19 lockdown at the end of March 2020. But while nurses and doctors were the first to be vaccinated at work, taxi drivers are still waiting for vaccinators to come to taxi ranks. He says taxi drivers have no time to go to the clinic because they don’t have days off. He urges the government to explore setting up temporary clinics or vaccination centres at taxi ranks.
Clement Doncabe is national secretary of Qina National Transport Workers Association (QNTWA). He was speaking to Sandra Hlungwani, SALB social media manager.
